The Anaphylaxis Campaign is a patient group supporting all those at risk of severe allergies
Fundraisers like Anaphylaxis Awareness Week (including Orange Wig Day) and our membership programmes are our largest source of funding. We do not receive any government funding. We need your support to continue our campaigns and helpline.
What your donations allow us to do:
- Provide our national helpline, which offers bespoke support to people living with allergies. You can reach the helpline on 01252 542029.
- Update our Knowledgebase articles and factsheets, keeping people informed on the different allergens and what to look out for.
- Provide free online training for families, individuals and carers and tailored online training for healthcare professionals such as school nurses, first aid trainers, GP’s and Practice Nurses.
- Work collaboratively with healthcare professionals, the food industry and the pharmaceutical industry to increase understanding of allergies.
- Offer tailored advice to nurseries, pre-schools, schools, colleges, universities and workplaces.
- Coordinate local community support groups across the country, allowing members to come together and offer mutual support, in a relaxed sociable environment.
- Campaign for key causes which aim to increase awareness and safety for all those at risk of a severe allergic reaction.
How we’re making a difference:
- We successfully amended legislation to allow life-saving adrenaline in all UK state schools.
- We are raising awareness of the challenges faced by adults living with allergies and providing support and information.
- We are continuing to campaign strongly for people who are prescribed adrenaline auto-injectors to have two devices available to them at all times.
- Anaphylaxis Matters Campaign – AIM, a national campaign to raise awareness of severe allergy with healthcare professionals and patients.
- #TakeTheKit, please continue to watch and share our short film which graphically highlights the risks of teenagers not carrying their medication.
